Northwest Community Action's Head Start program has been serving families in northwestern Minnesota since 1965. Currently, our Head Start program serves over two hundred children each year in Roseau, Lake of the Woods, Kittson, and Marshall counties. Center sites for children are located in Baudette, Warroad, Wannaska, Badger, Greenbush-Middle River, Grygla, Newfolden, Karlstad, Hallock, Lancaster and Roseau. We also now serve 73 families with Early Head Start. Eleven thousand families are served by Head Start programs throughout the state of Minnesota each year, and over one million children are served nationally.
Who is Eligible?
Children who are 3 to 5 years old are eligible for Head Start services. Pregnant women and children from birth to 3 years of age are eligible for Early Head Start services. Children and families who are homeless, in foster care, or receive TANF or SSI are also eligible for services. Eligibility is determined by Head Start program staff and some families may be eligible for services if they are determined to be at or below the federal poverty level. Some grantees enroll a percentage of children from families with incomes above the Poverty Guidelines as well.
Families are encouraged to apply.
